Isabel Liu has been appointed to the Board of The Pensions Infrastructure Platform (PiP) as Non-Executive Director to the Board.
Liu has 20 years’ experience investing in infrastructure. She played a key role in the successful start-up of four infrastructure investment businesses. These included the $1 billion AIG Asian Infrastructure Fund and the €1 billion ABN AMRO Global Infrastructure Fund.
Liu said: “Created for pension funds by pension funds, PiP offers a new and better way to access UK infrastructure for institutional investors. PiP represents a unique opportunity for pension funds small and large, private and public, to get the right kind of access to infrastructure investments, combining long-term, low risk, inflation-linked cash flows, with scale and true institutional alignment.
“Already halfway to its target of investing £2 billion in UK infrastructure on behalf of pension funds, PiP is at an important stage in its journey and I’m therefore very much looking forward to joining the team at this exciting point in PiP’s path to success.”
Chief Executive of PiP Mike Weston said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Isabel to the PiP Board. Her extensive knowledge and experience of infrastructure investment will be invaluable to PiP and our investors, as we build further momentum.
“The next target for PiP is to launch our first multi-strategy infrastructure investment fund, which will make direct investments into UK infrastructure, and Isabel will play a crucial role in its success.”
